TerraPay and Magnati together are revolutionizing payment trends and technology, while prioritizing financial inclusion and convenience for all.”
As a leading global partner of banks, mobile wallets, money transfer operators, and financial institutions, TerraPay brings extensive expertise and a robust network to this collaboration. Their role as an aggregator of leading digital and mobile wallets makes it possible for Telco Wallet holders from Africa to enjoy simple and secure cross-border payments in UAE at Magnati’s payment terminals.
Magnati’s new offering sets it apart from other players in the industry. By enabling wallets from Africa, through their strategic partnerships like Airtel, M-PESA, and MTN, at their payment terminals, Magnati is catering to the diverse needs of customers and merchants alike.
Ramana Kumar, Chief Executive Officer of Magnati said, “Over time, 50,000+ Payment Terminals of Magnati will be enabled to accept payments using popular wallets from Africa in their respective local currencies. This exciting collaboration with TerraPay signifies our commitment to providing seamless payment solutions that meet the evolving demands of our customers, while also fostering stronger ties between the UAE and Africa.”
